How to Avoid Irritating Feedback

The placement of your microphone is critical in avoiding feedback through your Power Gig system. Never set up your microphone in front of the speaker. Always set up your microphone behind the speaker. When approaching the speaker to make any adjustments, we recommend approaching the speaker from the rear and not walking directly towards the front of the speaker.

Setting Level Controls

It is best practice to set your input level controls (gains) in this manner:

  1. Unplug all inputs except for the one you wish to set the gain for. In this instance, the Line In RCA inputs.
    diagram
  2. Set the line level input device volume (smart phone, tablet, MP3 player, etc.) to 60%.

  3. Set the RPG225K Master Volume to 75%.
    shape
  4. Slowly turn up the level on the selected input (in this case, the Line/MP3 level). As soon as the clip indicator LED goes on or you hear any distortion – turn it down one or two notches.

After you set the levels on all input devices, you can readjust the RPG225K levels as necessary.

PLEASE NOTE

Because mixers feature two volume controls (channel and master), when connecting one via the XLR line in port, the procedure is slightly different. The RPG225K master volume should be set to 50% and the Line/MP3 Level control should be set to 50%. Set the mixer master volume to 50% and make the adjustments in step 4 on the mixer channel level control. If after making these adjustments the signal still isn’t strong enough, you can additionally boost the signal by turning up the Line/MP3 Level control. When adjusting the Mic1/Mic 2 Level controls, you must speak into the micop hone and adjust the level control as needed. This is because adjustments to the mic input are a matter of mic volume in relation to the music volume and not necessarily a clipping issue.

APPLICATION USES Microphone Presentations

Your Power Gig features ultra-low noise Mic/Line inputs via XLR/¼”TRS combo stereo input.

  1. Make sure the Power switch is in the OFF position.
  2. Plug your microphone into either the XLR or¼” jack.
  3. Switch on the Power Gig unit.
  4. Refer to the “Setting Level Controls” section of this manual for instructions on how to properly adjust the Mic Level controls.

If using a second microphone, connect the microphone to the Mic 2 Input and follow the same procedure detailed above.
Always stand behind the Power Gig when making your microphone adjustments to avoid feedback distortion.

Line Input

You can use the Line In XLR/¼”TRS combo stereo input to connect a mixer or the RCA inputs to connect an additional stereo signal source such as a smart phone, tablet, MP3 player, CD player, etc.

  1. Make sure the Power switch is in the OFF position.
  2. Connect the mixer to the XLR/¼” combo input or line level signal source to the RCA inputs (never use both at once).
  3. Switch on the Power Gig unit.
  4. Refer to the “Setting Level Controls” section of this manual for instructions on how to properly adjust the input level controls (gains).

Line Out Balanced Connection

The XLR Line Out allows you to output the amplifier signal to a subwoofer, another powered speaker, or an amp, which will, in turn, power other speakers. Simply connect the
output device to the RPG225K using an XLR to XLR or XLR to 1/i’ TRS cable to share the signal. We recommend you use high quality cables such as Rockville’s RCXFM20E-B XLR to XLR cable or the RCXMB20-B XLR to ¼-TRS cable.

Speaker Output Connection

The Speakon output marked Speaker Out is used to connect the active unit to the passive unit. Passive speaker impedance must always be 8 ohms.

Troubleshooting

  PROBLEM   SOLUTION
  No power
  1. Make sure the unit is plugged in and the power switch is in the
    ON position.
  2. Check that the power cable is plugged in tightly to the unit.
  3. Check and replace the fuse if necessary. See fuse replacement
    diagram on the facing page.
  4. If people or equipment tend to step and roll over or stretch
    your power cable it can get damaged. Always try a second cable
    to test for shorts in original cable. Dispose of original damaged
    power cables immediately.
  No sound/
distorted sound
  1.  Check that all appropriate cables are plugged in correctly.
  2.  Check the Volume/Levels settings. Refer to the “Setting Level
    Controls” section of this manual for instructions on how to properly adjust the input level controls (gains).
  3. Be sure your microphone is on and plugged into the correct input.
  4. If using a mixing console make sure fader and balance are set to center positions and levels are increased. Make sure the mixer is plugged into the correct input.
  5. If volume and Treble/Bass settings are maxed out, turn one of them down as you may be overdriving the unit.
  6. Check volume and gain settings on all input sources.
  Buzzing sound   Make sure you are using a proper cable. For ¼- cables, there are 3 types: instrument, TS                      (unbalanced), and TRS (balanced).
The RPG225K accepts both TS and TRS ¼- cables. Check the
requirements of the connected gear and make sure you are using the appropirate cable.
  Mic feedback   Point the mies away from the speaker. Make sure the mies are in back of the speaker, not in front of it.
  Poor Mic sound
  1. 1. Make sure you are using the Mic In ports.
  2. If using wireless mies connect them into the Line input of your mixer.
  Bluetooth pairing fails
  1. Check to see that both devices are turned on and that your fails Bluetooth device is discoverable.
  2. Turn both devices off and then on again.
  3. Make sure you’ve selected the proper source.
  4.  Make sure that the Bluetooth device is within 5 feet of the unit.
  5. Move both devices away from other Bluetooth devices, microwaves, wireless routers, and other electronics.
  6. Make sure that the unit is not paired to a previously paired device.
  No SD or USB
playback
  1.   Make sure you’ve selected the proper source.
  2. Make sure that the SD card and USB drive do not exceed the maximum capacity of 64GB.
